What would you say that the mood is like on campus right now? >> It's, pretty calm at the moment. Sijia at this encampment still very much in full force, though I can hear, you know, some meeting, some talks happening inside the encampment. And so that means that, you know, despite this trespass notice being issued it doesn't look as though anyone is preparing to leave as of yet, they do have a couple more days, though, so not until 8:00am on monday morning. Does everyone inside this encampment here at uft have to vacated? Things have to be cleaned up and moved out. And that came after the university did send an offer to students yesterday which kind didn't really meet their demands, but it really gave students side the possibility of being having a seat at the table when it came to further negotiations when it comes to and investments. But you know, the students have said today that they feel that they didn't meet their demands and they feel that this is more of an ultimatum than anything else. We heard from earlier today about here's more. Have a listen. >> The offer that they put forward really is the first offer. It's a first and you know, we look forward to further negotiations and you know, it's a bit disheartening that despite agreeing to the and continue negotiations, this administration is still going forward with a trespass notice. But we're here will continue to be here and will continue to mandate aspect. >> So as I said, 8:00am on monday morning is when this encampment is supposed to be cleared up. The university has wanted it cleared up because it says poses a safety risk to other students. And it says it is willing you know, continue with any other subsequent legal steps as well. After this notice of trespassing. So we will have to wait and see what happens again. That's not until 8:00am monday morning. So potentially some movement between now and then.

They had pledged allegiance to isis. The islamic state and money was being used to finance that organization sent back home to further that cause he was planning to go to the authorities and betray the others. It's our position that the others came up with a plan

to prevent that from happening. A plan to kill name a keel and his family. >> The crown says on may 29th 2021. That plan was put into action alleging that nath entered the restaurant, pulled a handgun and shot 7 times in 18 seconds. Witnesses told the court they saw a slender man rush from the restaurant and hop into the trunk of a waiting honda accord, which sped off inside a keels mother. Rania had heard several pops.

And by the end of october, more big box stores will be allowed to sell the lower alcohol beverages like beer and wine. This accelerated plan is going to cost taxpayers to the tune of 225 million dollars. It's going to help out the beer store with the transition as well as giving a discount to convenience stores. Premier ford was asked about what the costs is to taxpayers. >> The monopoly with that. The 3 big breweries they're done, they're gone.
